    Angry Gearbox gone pop.....AGAIN

    yes its happened again 2nd reconditioned gearbox to go pop in less than 10 months and now the company who supplied and fitted it say its out of warranty.

    does anyone no where i stand as i paid over £1.5K for the box, LSD, labour and clutch??

    depends on the terms in your warranty... if its a 6 month one then your left paying for another one...

    dont think i will be paying for another one, i will go to trading standards if needs be. A gearbox has got to last longer than 1500 miles

    says nothing on the receipt about warranty plus i have used the company god knows how many times and spent well over 6k there. The guy who did the work told me 12 months warranty before i brought it. 6 months or 6k miles just doesn't sound right

    Re: Gearbox gone pop.....AGAIN

    6 months or 6k sounds 100% on something that is a recon... if it was new then 12 months 12k sound right... although some places would still offer 12 month warranties...

    looks like your out of luck... without written proof you have nothing to go on....

    Re: Gearbox gone pop.....AGAIN

    new boxes come with a 5 year 50k warranty from vw as i was going to buy one. ive rang about 20 different gearbox specialists and they all say re-conned units should have 12 months 12k moving parts + labour warranty.
    ive also just read the sales of goods act 1979 - says in other words that i can complain that it was poor quality and has not lasted as long as it should
